If you look at the set design drawings for the show that was gonna originally follow the original series you can see that basically every proposed set ends up getting used at some point in tng or its follow on shows. Like almost every element thought of carries over into the shows at some point man.
They had to design a set that was realistically useable for a show that was filming fast so considering that the simple set that tng has for the bridge is allowable and excusable. But yeh it was a dope set
also i dont understand the anime stuff in your post
i dont watch anime
i watch star trek
Yeah, I'm aware, i think they are just deluded enough to think the Star Trek universe would tolerate their crimes, while in fact they would be given the Klingon pain stick treatment.
…anyone see the narrative that these posts only revolve around Star Trek and not Red Dwarf, etc?
yes : Red Dwarf is for Sci-Fi epicures. Not American "intellectuals" filling their minds with the equivalent of Space-McDonalds.
No offense. I like StarTrek when I need to wind down or fall asleep on the couch.
Red Dwarf isn't sci-fi, it's not even a parody of sci-fi, but a parody of a TV show that was supposed to be sci-fi.
That's British meta-humor.
Babylon 5 or i'm yeeting you out an airlock.
The Bold and The Beautiful in Space. Also, every race eats swedish meatballs because that's what we got from catering that day.
Or how about Earth 2?
Plot: "Magic dirt people cured my son's asthma."
Babylon 5 fans were literally mallgoths, back when the show started. They spent all of their lives arguing on message boards, and just HAD to like things nobody else liked, just like all these crappy 90s Sci-Fi Channel shows nobody remembers now.
It WAS more progressive and daring on LGBTQ and other social issues than Trek though, but the same can be said for a lot of other 90s crap with no other merits to it.
I'm kinda starting to like Orville though. Most episodes are almost shamefully entertaining, for their low ambitions, it's surprising how good many of the plots and concepts really are. And unlike Trek, they really have the guts to say outright that all religion and "traditional culture" is sheer insanity that should be eradicated. They really pull no punches on that!
And Red Dwarf was brilliant when at its best, but I think it was more a Buck Rogers / Alien / Space:1999 spoof, much more pessimistic, low-tech and cynical than Star Trek's future. No Federation, transporters or miraculous medical technology in it. I'd kinda like to see a new take on that kind of near-future space setting, though.
>>3620237>Red Dwarf was brilliant when at its best
The only point of Red Dwarf was that the team could not pull off a proper sci-fi show with the budget they were given, so they made a parody of the fact that the the props were basically worksite lamps and traffic cones covered in tin foil, and the actors didn't fit the roles they were cast.
Red Dwarf had some very good episodes amongst the rest : Tikka to ride and Stoke me a Clipper was brilliant.
Better than life , Meltdown & Rimmerworld was hilarious.
I have watched more reruns of Red Dwarf than other series despite the trashy look. The dynamic between the 4 main characters carry the show.

Okay edgelord faggot.
You'd think shows predominant based on race relations and fighting against tribalism would have fans that got this message.
Nope. Humans are too stupid to be woken up with mere words and media, but not too stupid to be moved to violence for entertainment.
Sci-fi fans are predominantly autistic manchildren. You can explain the concept to an assburger, but that doesn't mean they'll understand it, because the particular dysfunction they have causes disinterest and difficulty to reflect on what other people think.
It kinda makes the person feel like they're the only real person in the world and others are just puppets, so social rules are more of a theoretical concern unless there's a direct need to follow them (eg. not getting beat up for being an insufferable dork).
You're trying to describe Autism, but actually described Narcisism better.
I've met a number of fine auties who are frankly better people than me, and most others. I've also met an assburger that thinks that justifies not working and insulting people who won't have fucking unbirthing conversations in public.
Mental handicaps don't make you a douchebag. Being a douchebag does. Alas, we live in a society that is too obsessed with 'gotcha!' realizations, where we can just sweep all the 'others' under a rug when they disagree with us. You could genocide and sterilize down to the last two humans and they'd still fight.
No. Narcissism is different - it's a fragile ego problem, not a neurological issue.
One way to detect autism in children is observing their lack of understanding over other minds. You make a puppet play where one puppet hides a thing, and another puppet comes looking for it. Normal children correctly predict that the other puppet will not find the object, while the autistic children only consider what they themselves know, and they know where the object is, so they incorrectly predict that the other puppet will find it.
The autistic person does not automatically consider that other people have minds of their own - they don't automatically consider other people as people. They only become interested in the fact to avoid conflicts, and gradually learn to emulate the sort of social reflection that normal people do by sheer effort of mind. It's actually aggravating for an autistic person that other people don't behave exactly as they would want, because it breaks the predictability of the world and makes it nonsensical to the autistic mind.
One theory about autism is the "noisy brain" theory that posits the autistic mind is too sensitive to signals, so it cannot process any ambiguity. It just gets lost in the noise. Only clear repetitive patterns can be perceived, learned and repeated.
So in trying to understand other people, the autistic person reduces them into crude stereotypes and rigid "rules of thumb". They're also liable to interpret speech very literally, argue over meaning of words, and get misunderstood by using words in ways which other people don't understand because they assume other people are using the same definitions and contexts.
>>3620730> he even selflessly offered himself up for some dangerous medical experimentation.
MacDuff had to volunteer for the experiment. If it had been tried on anyone from Enterprise, the subject's memory would have been restored. Then the Satarran plot would have been foiled.
Somebody on 8ch /fur/ told me TNG was institutionalized garbage, I refuted them, turns out they were correct. Go watch Firefly
yup thats correct
go back to 8gag with ur shitty opinions on trek
i don't know whats with scifi and just ruining everything these last few years. Dr Who is just fucked beyond repair, Star Wars is a raging dumpster fire full of old tires, and Star Trek is now apparently gay as hell.
Not going to lie I'd push hard for some Star Trek feline action, but it doesn't really belong in cannon episodes… faggy gay porn tropes of white guys getting plowed by black guys probably should have been reconsidered as well…
All three of those franchises were shitty to begin with. It's just your nostalgia and autism making you think they're better than they ever were.
Apparently there actually is a weird correlation between being a Star Trek fan and being a pedophile.
Never actually liked Star Trek, but I had a girlfriend who was super into it in middle-high school. I named my first dog after Luke from Star Wars, so obviously like those… I really don't know how Disney fucked Star Wars up so bad, I mean they almost stepped up their game with "The Mandalorian" then just kinda wiped off their dicks and walked away leaving it a sad dripping mess.
I didn't even get into Dr Who until David Tennant. Still pissed that Obama swore we could keep our Doctor, and then bam, no more David. Its just kinda went down hill from there, a little peak with old man Dr, didn't even mind the Master turning into the Mistress/Missy. Seriously did they absolutely have to turn everyone into women though?
I really don't get it, these studios are taking popular shows and movies that are really popular with men… who are like half the population roughly. Then just replacing everyone with women and putting in a bunch of kick to the nuts jokes and hen party humor. Guys don't want to see that, and scifi is for the most party a masculine interest. We don't need women being dr who, all female ghost busters, Super Woman castrating lex luthor, or Batman sexually transitioning to be in a romantic relationship with Robin.
what we really need is a bloody reboot of firefly.
Did you star wars autists forget how much you guys were whining about the prequels ruining the franchise?
Or whining about Lucas' editing of the original trilogy ruining the franchise?
How about the holiday special?
It was always shit and any time someone touched the shit you faggots would cry about how the original turds were better
Robin is gay now, transitioning isn't necessary for Robin to be a faggot with Bruce.
Capeshit is another shitty media that you autists fail to see the inherent shitiness of. You can't ruin something that was always shit since it was created.
im ashamed that my sarcastic exaggeration was neither sarcastic or an exaggeration.
Also the new superman is a fag too, because capeshit is creatively bankrupt.
Fuck capeshit for ruining comics as a medium in north America
Christopher Reeve was the most loved of all the actors that have ever played Superman, and there have been many.
Probably because he looked most like and acted most like the way the character was actually supposed to be if he really existed.
you sir, are a bitch, and deserve to be called such.
They were shit movies and the only reason no one is willing to admit that both the films suck and Christopher Reeves sucks is because the cripple got what he deserved for being a horse lover.
Nick Cage would have been a far better superman.
That's not Superman, and never will be.
Why'd you delete your post steam?>>3629099
Superman was always faggot shit for faggots and only faggots think otherwise
Nicholas Cage doesn't resemble the character at all.
He's a far better actor than Reeve ever was.
The worst looking superman is when Alex Ross paints him
-watches superman 4- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5mcMmE3RL8
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS NONSENSE?!
It was one of the worst superhero movies of all time. Second only to the original Fantastic Four movie that was SO bad, they not only didn't release it, they destroyed all copies of it but one survived and has been making the sci-fi convention bootleg video circuit. Its cinematic horror and abysmal production quality is truly epic.
I never saw Superman 4 … at least not more than the first 5 minutes which consisted of several plot problems. >>3629464
WTF, eye beams that repair stone walls? I'm calling Hacks! Batman is what you get when you max out your character and buy all the DLC. Superman is what you get when you cheat it all in with hacks and cheat codes.
Here is the explanation for that, from the comments section:
"In the comic adaptation he moved at super speed to rebuild the wall, but Cannon didn't have the budget for that and went the cheap route here instead for the film."
Just started watching these old movies, what the whole franchise begun with, and whoah….. this is really serious, not quite the "toy commercial" you might suspect it to be. To bad they pretty much screwed up the franchise later, but the original movies are really worth seeing.
The most awesome speech ever:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4b6QDhDjBI
I think it's because the Scientologists thought it was an attack on them.
